Northern Maverick Brewing in Toronto

Located in the heart of Toronto’s trendy King West neighbourhood on Bathurst between King and Queen Street, Northern Maverick Brewing Co opened its doors just in time for TIFF in September 2017.

The massive 11,000 sq. ft. space features a 10-hectolitre brewhouse with eight 20-hl fermenters, petite retail shop, and two-story restaurant complete with open concept dining room, eye-catching beer bar, and private dining suite.

The 400-seat King West restaurant boasts an expansive street-front patio as well as spectacular city views from a second floor beer school and library. Beer-lovers can go from amateur to expert as the school offers courses in beer and food pairings; the fine art of homebrewing, beer tasting and recipe development.

Brewmaster Andrew Crowder manages the tanks at Northern Maverick after spending five years at Muskoka Brewery. Northern Maverick’s signature is its Vienna-style lager but also features four other mainstays including Sessions American Pale Ale, a White IPA, First Day IPA and Gose.

Executive Chef Mark Cutrara (formerly Cowbell and Bar Hop) brings his passion for sustainably-sourced food to the Northern Maverick menu, offering a collection of dishes perfect for a pint pairing. Chef Cutrara’s culinary team smoke their own cheese and age their own charcuterie, offering snack lovers a perfect mix and match board option where ooey gooey fromage and smokey meat are paired with candied nuts, grainy mustard and pickled vegetables.

Other highlights from Chef Cutrara’s menu include a decadent Beer & Cheese Chowder, Squash Ricotta Cakes adorned with pine nuts, finger-licking-good Buttermilk Fried Chicken paired with cornbread and crunchy slaw, and the juicy Cowbell Burger prepared with dry-aged house ground chuck and topped with bacon, smoked cheese and pickle.
